We’ll likely be waiting a long long time for Warner Bros.’ live-action DCEU to get their act together and bring us a proper Red Hood movie, but luckily some intrepid filmmakers and super-fans have done the heavy lifting already. Hisonni Johnson, whose work we’ve featured on Collider before, teams up with Alberto Triana for this interesting mash-up that features Noel Schefflin reprising his role as Jason Todd, a part he previously played in the excellent Nightwing: The Series. But this story comes with a twist!
The twist is in the title: Red Hood IT, but that’s all I’ll say about it. To find out just what this fan film is all about, I invite you to watch the first trailer, followed by more behind-the-scenes details on its production. It’s a fun take on two different fan-favorite properties, for sure, and it’s but the first featured in the new indie series from “Robot Underdog Presents” which serves to celebrate fandom in all forms. Look for the full film this April!
Check out the trailer for Red Hood IT below:
“Red Hood IT” is part of our new “Robot Underdog Presents” series where we feature other independent filmmakers! Our goal with this series is to support other indie filmmakers and nerds like us by providing a platform to show their films! Anyone can submit – even you!
Written, directed and shot by Hisonni Johnson and Alberto Triana, and starring Noel Schefflin as Jason Todd, Pennywise The Clown by Jeremy Boone, Veronica Mistuk as Berverly Marsh, and Danny Shepard as Nightwing aka Dick Grayson.
